With Lionel Messi (34) and Paris Saint-Germain’s contract expiring in three months, it was revealed that he would have to cut his wages in order to remain.
Paris Saint-Germain suspended negotiations with Messi for a new contract in accordance with UEFA’s financial play rules.

This is why Saudi Arabia’s offer to make Messi the highest-paid soccer player in the world is eye-catching. It is known that Al Hilal, a club in Saudi Arabia, is seeking to recruit Messi for 194 million pounds (approximately 308.6 billion won). Messi’s father, Jorge Messi, who works as Messi’s agent, was caught in Saudi Arabia, raising rumors of a transfer to Saudi Arabia. Al-Hilal plans to recruit Messi to face off against Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays for Al Nasr. 메이저놀이터
